    Averting the post-antibiotic era - challenges and developments

    Antibiotic resistance among bacterial pathogens is increasing posing serious health threats, and there is therefore a great need to face this challenge. The conference will bring together scientists across several research fields for discussions of possible solutions. It is clear that next generation therapeutic strategies will be rooted in creative multi-disciplinary research performed by the best scientists. Meet some of them at the forth-coming conference from 31 October to 3 November 2018.
